    This driver adds crossfire support for Battlestations: Pacific. It was broken with 9.5. Haven´t really tested anything else so far...

    looks like great drivers for me. CF is running fine.
    Power Play bug (2nd card shows 3d clock @ idle) seems to be solved. :)

    Do you just install these over the 9.5's? Or do you need to uninstall first?

    Technically the ATI installer will remove the old versions first but save settings and profiles, can remove it all beforehand but it's not required though if you had a bad install previously or a beta version it might be worth to do a so called "clean install" first (Uninstall everything.) before reinstalling the new drivers.
    (Mentioned previously but these appear to be beta as well since they lack a WHQL signature and are dated 5th May.)

    Umm, I thought Windows 7 ATI drivers already are WDDM 1.1
    I saw wddm 1.1 mentioned when I tried Windows 7 RC

    Working fine thanks for posting!

    Pity that its definitely driver related for the horrid stutter in The Wheelman, I keep hoping a cat release may solve it, but it looks like an misguided hoping im clinging to on that one LOL

    Wow, these drivers are unbelivable!

    I'm doing 57 FPS average on World in conflict ingame bench @ 4x AA 1920x1200, dx10 all settings maxed, water reflection grade 1024bit!

    Thats crazy! On parts where I used to do around 45 fps it now does 65-67 fps!!

    I can even see improved IQ~ amaxzing driver :nerd:

    Now I just pray to god they are stable and don't bsod in my other games :x

    /edit


    Loool man I'm blown awaaaaay with these drivers this is crazy.. 59 average fps 1920x1200 4x aa 16x af all settings maxed out dx10 in WiC on win7.

    Insane, thats 10 fps more then with 8.12 hotfix wich was the best driver for me so far!!!

    It has unlocked some insane uber mode in my 4870x2 lol.. its just that nuts it is sooo fast now I'm never gonna change this driver xDD

    168 max fps lol before my max fps was like 110, now when the bombs drops in the wic demo im between 150 fps and in the end when the final bombs hit its 40 fps and most of the time inbetween it is above 50 lol..before was like 20 fps in that sequence :banana:

    This is crazy!

    is that game based on the unreal engine? if so try renaming the exe to UT3.exe and check results.

    Have a good day

    Has anyone noticed improvements using these on a 4850?

    Everything I read about the 9.5s had them decreasing performance.

    I had roughly the same performance with 9.5s as I did with 9.4, 9.3, 9.2, 9.1 and 8.12. That is not running benchmark suites, thats running games and watching my average FPS but I never noticed any major drop going from 1 CCC to another.

    That being said I have not tried 9.6s yet as I run Windows 7 and it seems you have to use some workarounds with the ones posted here to get them to work.....something I could do but am too lazy to mess with, so I'll just wait till official 9.6s which are due out next week.

    Its seems that the driver removes almost every shadow effect in Lord of the Rings Online.

    Yeah nice, 3d clock bug finally fixed!:) Installed fine w/win7+patch, thanks guys!

    I still have no display manager/properties in ccc. Proper res was auto detected but refresh rate sticks @59hz. If i try changing in windows display properties it doesnt take, same as 9.5
